EIFL and partners from the OpenAIRE and FOSTER (Facilitating Open Science Training for European Research) projects are celebrating Open Access Week 2017 (23-29 October) with a series of webinars on open science, open access and open data.

Open Access Week is an annual, global event established by SPARC in 2008 to raise awareness about open access (OA) and to call for OA to be the new norm in scholarship and research.

The theme of Open Access Week 2017 is ‘Open in order to...’. This open-ended question invites answers to the question - What concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available?

The webinars run from 23 - 26 October.
